About the event
Tickets for the Big Ben tours in April go on sale on 10th January. Tickets are non-refundable, so we need to get confirmation of the numbers before we buy them.
We'll book a late-morning tour of Elizabeth Tower and in the afternoon visit the Hunterian Museum which holds over 2000 exhibits that trace the history of surgery from ancient times to the latest robot-assisted operations. Entry to this museum is free so it won't be an issue if you'd rather spend your time elsewhere.
The tour of the Elizabeth Tower takes you up a narrow 334-step spiral stairwell to the Belfry where Big Ben, the Great Bell, hangs. Along the route, your guide will reveal details of the most extensive and complex conservation project in the Tower’s history. This vital conservation work involved over 500 people from across the UK and their traditional crafts including stone masonry, glass blowing, gilding, plastering, cast iron and clock mechanics. The tour lasts 90 minutes and has 337 steps, so it's not for the faint-hearted.
Meet at 10:30am at Cromwell Green entrance SW1P 3JX.
